    Anyone know how?

    I've got a busted auto dimming mirror and a replacement from eBay.
    Looking at the replacement it looks like it snap-fits on.

    But I've given the old one a firm tug - trying to pivot the mirror up towards the roof lining - but it just feels like I'm going to pull the windscreen out!

    Anyone done it before? Any tips as to how to pull / twist???

    Can't find anything about it on the forum or google :(

    Cheers

    Unclip cable duct cover.
    Remove connector from fastener and disconnect.
    Press interior rear-view mirror diagonally downwards off retaining plate towards interior (clamping springs in base of mirror).

    Well that sucks.

    Now have a broken windscreen with broken rear view mirror still attached.
    And to top it all - just 3pft insurance cover. Me feels this might be an expensive ride.
